Just last weekend, the whole world witnessed an unexpected outcome of the Pacquiao-Bradley fight in boxing- well, at least a surprise for most boxing enthusiasts and fans.

Unexpected happenings, or constraints, or decisions like thateasily create shock, tension, sometimes bewilderment or doubt, or evenarguments amongst those who are affected. But whatever the turn of event is- that needs to be respected.

Unexpected. Surprise. Twist. However you call it- it happens.And though we will be caught unaware when it happens, wecertainly know we have to be ready anytime.

What is important is, you are able to confront gracefully what you did not expect. You take it calmly, maybe a little difficult to have it cheerfully if it is one against your favor but- you accept it, think about it, and good-naturedly react or go about it. If you are favored, humbly thank God for the opportunity.

Something unexpected tests your character. It’s something that doesn’t happen all the time, but something that makes you learn all the time.


CHALLENGE – Tell us about something “unexpected” that you had to deal with recently. How did you go about it? If it is for or against your favor- what simply did you learn?
